Drums and Drummers

Who's a badass drummer and why?

I like Cryptopsy's Flo Mounier, the way he just annihilates that snare drum. I've always been a snare fan, and he does it...



That kinda thing is pretty good. What do you think?

I'm a big Tool fan and I think Danny Carey really gets some wicked sounds out of his set. He's a very versatile drummer.

Love Tool as well! They have put on an absolutely stellar show every time I've seen them.

I think metal, heavy rock, progressive, any of those styles really are defined by percussion. I mean you hear a death metal beat for example, you know it. You can skip the guitars and the voice, listen to the drummer and you know the genre, if it's a good drummer.

Metal and progressive rock seem to be carrying the torch for upper echelon drumming these days, and sure there are great Country drummers, great drummers in Alternative Rock, but if you think "best of the best" you're thinking: Tool, Dream Theater, Cryptopsy, Fleshgod Apocalypse...

You can't just sit in your room with your guitar and decide, "Okay, I'm going to create the most intense music that is humanly possible!" anymore.

You can get pretty far down the road with that if you can program MIDI well, which I can do, but there is no comparison between that level of insanity and the pure evil that can be conjured when you've got a good skin-beater on board.

I used to jam with my brother all the time, and he taught me drums and I taught him guitar, and we're both pretty good, lol. We can switch instruments and you'd think it was Metallica in the room, or maybe a drunk Pantera, lol. Put us on our real instruments, though, my God!!

There is just no touching the heavy music backed by professional-level drumming.

The problem with modern metal: too much emphasis on rhythms and cool 'beats', but not enough good riffs. Metal is not hip hop.

anyway, cool drums, brah:

I think this is one of the first times I completely agree with you WC. I'm so tired of people jacking themselves off over widdly woodly guitars written in an odd time signature with polymeters.

With that being said, I love Marco Minnemann especially with The Aristocrats.

Seems there are two schools of thought in metal, well a lot more than two, lol, but these two seem to be at somewhat of odds:

- Good riffs
- Aural assault

That's not necessarily always true, and the better bands do both, but you have your "purists" who are all "melodic metal" or "extreme tech death only."

If you are going for that blast-fest you gotta be damn good because it's pretty much an arms race of who can destroy the set more than the other band. Everything's got its place, you know?

The genre got it's sound from people asking the question, "How can we do this..

faster?
louder?
better?
completely ridiculously, like wtf were they THINKING?!"

Nothing wrong with that.

The best bands played on their own terms. Music as a competition of instrumental technique is best left to non-artists

Agreed. It's nice as an entertaining performance but it's not good music.

Absolutely true and perhaps the reason why anything tech for the sake of it bores me like hell.

I can make that same sound by pursing my lips together and blowing. Guess that's why I think he blows.

George Kollias is nuts on kicks.



For all-around effortless craziness, John Longstreth.



I still like Dave Lombardo for making the drums breathe





The two more interesting guys that blew my mind by doing stuff I thought you weren't allowed to do:

Sean Reinert



Dave Haley
